Our Health & Resilience portfolio of nonprofits, startups, and intermediary funders primarily focuses on regions most vulnerable to climate change, including Sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and South America. In addition to capital, our portfolio has access to Autodesk resources through in-kind support, including technology, training, pro bono consulting, storytelling, and networks.
